We designed a greenhouse that integrates care for the earth, care for people and sharing the surplus. A beautiful vegetable chapel in the garden where we can bathe in oxygen.
At one side it has a stone wall that collects solar warmth during the day and slowly releases it during the night. This wall keeps the greenhouse warm.
At the other side there is space for a hot compost heap. In summer (when the extra heat is not needed) it is a tomato bed; in winter we pile up the compost in the evening and let a few chickens turn it during the day.
Together with the warmth collecting wall this keeps the greenhouse much warmer during cold winter nights.
The greenhouse brings us a bigger diversity of plants, and it stretches the edges of our seasons. We can start sowing a bit earlier, and keep harvesting a bit longer.
